Explosive Miller (24 from 23 balls) was elevated to open the batting, but was bogged down by the line of the Indian bowlers and fell to Raina (1-27 in three overs) as he tried to up the tempo. Only captain JP Duminy (55 from 41 balls) and debutant Christiaan Jonker (49 from 24 balls) were able to muster innings of substance. South Africa required 19 off the final over bowled by the excellent Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2-24), but were restricted to just a single boundary to fall short of their target. India’s two-month tour of South Africa is now at an end. The home side won the Test series 2-1, but were thumped 5-1 in the ODIs. South Africa start a four-Test series at home to Australia Thursday.
India in blue were excellent and the series wins will be considered landmarks. Still believe it was the best opportunity to beat South Africa away. But overall, the tour was a success for Indian cricket.February 24, 2018
